Travel >Jupiter Hotel Portland Hotels
Hip, affordable boutique hotel next to the Doug Fir Lounge, this former motor lodge is refurbished in funky ways (chalk doors!) & has its own art gallery near the lobby.
If your dream is to crash an up 'n coming rock star’s after hours hotel room party, stay here—this hip inn’s adjoining Doug Fir Lounge books some of the most interesting musical acts around, and comes complete with sexy bar, fire pit, smoking patio, and potential hookups.
A cool place to go.
Wow this Hotel Rocked!!
As we where looking for a place to sleep at about 11:00pm on a monday night comeing back from a trip to pick up my childhood friend from cali. We saw a bright blue light down the street as we got closer The Jupiter hotel sighn glowed in my eye's. I was so shocked to see a little place that took me back to places I had seen when I was a kid in california. The place looked so cool like I was transformed back in time to the 60's. The customer servis was way nice they looked like very hip kids with a retro punk fair!!! that made me feel like I was a punk again in the 80's. Our room had a nice ikea clean but yet retro mix of 50's 60's and 70's look to it. we had fancy water for $3.00 a poetry book for $25.00 some colored chalk that at first I did not know what was for until I steped outside and saw that our door was a chalk board. Being that I am an artist I thought this was way flippin cool. The staff let us get the late night discount a little early and we had a great time at the resturant and lounge great food nice drinks very very trendy.
I had a blast and will stay there again real soon.
Sleek and Fun. Ok, I am a real person and if you want to have a good time that rocks I highly recommend the JUPITER. This place isn't for everyone, and wouldn't suggest you go to stay if your lame and don't appreciate a good time. Not really a good spot for those who plan on going to bed like its a school night. Oh, and to all those who bashed on the Jupiter about all the small things "get a grip on your life!!" I spent hours on the phone trying to track down a place for me and my girl to kick back and just get away for a night and celebrate our annif. The front desk staff was very helpful and happy to help me out. This place rocks and will be coming back for sure... Joshua
NOT RECCOMENDED and not family friendly.. On our recent visit, we had NO HOT WATER for 4 days, even after being moved to 3 different rooms and being assured someone was in the process of fixing the request repeatedly. Also, our AIR CONDITIONER did not ork in 2 of the 3 rooms we were moved to. The walls were paper thin, and the beds uncomfortable. The only compensation offered by managementy was a gift certificate which we would obviously never use! While the Staff was very friendly, the accomodations were very dissapointing and the website misguiding. Not reccomended and not worth the money.
Do not be seduced by the website. This place is the new Motel 6 of Portland...which is being kind.. Okay, the Jupiter is a piece of sh**. The place is a dump with an Ikea veneer. The room was damp and musty. I am talkin' moldy-panty-musty. You can hear everything above and around you. While it appeared clean it was not. Even the toilet paper holder was messed up. If I'm going to spend time on the potty I expect that everything functions properly. Call me high maintenance, and I am, but it aint that hard to use a level and put in a couple of screws. Chipped paint, nasty linoleum, and carpet that appeared to see more a** than the toilet seat. This place was not only in need of another renovation, it was in need of a health inspection. Oh, and the bed was horribly uncomfortable. Stay far, far away.
Sad. Very sad..
Don't do it!
The style is as thin as the walls.
Our non-smoking room had a public ashtray bolted right at the door!
The shower curtain had an inch of pink mold all along its base.
The sleek IKEA toilet paper holder was screwed into the wall at an angle preventing the paper from staying put.
The beige linolium on the bathroom floor is original to the building and shows it's long, sad history.
Peeling paint in the shower.
Piped-in music was blaring from the speakers right outside our door.
$7 parking- if you can beat the public to them. They're not reserved for guests.
Attention to detail lacking on every front.
pretentious reviewers don't know how to rock*and*roll.
This place is for rock and rollers that know how to have a good time on their own instead of the people (and websites) dictating a good time for them. If you come expecting bad service and a negative experience you are not going to have the chance to really enjoy what this hotel has to offer. I have stayed at this place NUMEROUS TIMES and the front desk is nothing but helpful. People looking for a helpful review should call the front desk and talk to the "rude front desk staff"...I think you will be pleasantly suprised. If you need to stay at the Hilton, or even the Shilo...I'm begging you to do so. Everybody else, grab a drink at the Doug Fir and kick your heels up @ the Jups. I'll be at the fire pit sipping on a bloody mary.
WHAT A JOKE!. For our first Valentine's Day celebration, my husband wanted to take me to a mod, fun hotel...and from the looks of the website, this was the place. WHAT A JOKE! We went to check in and was ignored by the front desk help for 10 minutes...but the decor was deceivingly swank and trendy. We were so excited...then, we went to our room. THIS PLACE IS A FREAKING DUMP. It was so small, baren, dirty...I honestly cannot believe that this place is still open for business. I cannot comprehend how CitySearch even gave it a rating of 8.5. COME ON. I completely agree with all of the other reviews written by my fellow disappointed Portlanders. The only good thing I have to say about this place is that we were immediately refunded our money so that we could go spend a fantastic night at the Hotel Lucia! :)
I have to agree with all the bad reviews here. I was so hopeful that the Jupiter was going to be a cool, funky, hip spot to crash in Portland. After multiple flubs, I will never go back or recommend the Jupiter.
We got our room 3 hours after arriving to check in with little to no apologies. Getting back to the hotel after midnight we were greeted with a party in the courtyard and we were next to the public bathroom. We were up until 3 with drunk/loud people lined up outside our window. We even contemplated a drive back to Seattle that night. 3 hour lake check in, bad customer service, horrible room (nothing like the sites photos FYI), I?d have to say its not worth any deal you get.
Great Lobby, but the hotel is a dump. Only stay at this hotel if you want a cheap (very cheap) room I paid the advertised rate, $104, but if I had paid $50 it might have been worth it. Don't be fooled by the slick website and ad copy. This hotel is a dump. A thick coat of white paint can only go so far. I have stayed at refurbished hotels up and down the coast and this wouldn't even fit in the catagory. How they got a good review from conde nast or GQ, I can only guess. If you want a cheap room go to la quinta or travel lodge or comfort Inn. This hotel was a disappointnment in all respects. It appeared from the looks of the room next door that this is a residence hotel. The massage service offered in the hotel gave a flop house atmosphere to the establishment. I felt like the green shag rug bolster pillow on the bed came from the carpet of the original motel.
Great Hotwire rate--don't pay full price. We stayed at the Jupiter hotel...after getting a great rate on Hotwire. Look for the 'B' for Boutique--we hear they do a ton of bookings this way. Our cost was about $50-something bucks. The hotel was worth about that. It was a 2 1/2 star experience. The room was away from the Doug Fir, had two double beds on platforms that were firm, not saggy. No box spring (beware bad back folks). Room furnished in IKEA...for a spare European look and very small. Some our towels were VERY rich and fluffy...and the sheets were nice; the 100% cotton kind. However, there isn't any parking unless you pay. And we did find a bottle and cigarette under the bed...so the rooms aren't THAT clean. For what we paid, the room was fine, and again SMALL. We're only there to sleep, not lounge around. We didn't hear a ton of noise; but we were there a week nite. There are bums all over Portland, so this neighborhood is just as 'safe' as the rest. Besides, we are from SF, so know what REAL in-you-face panhandling is. This is a re-furbed Miami-type 50's two story motel that they've jazzed up to be more modern. It is spare, and not anything luxe. It is only 'hip' because the furnishings are spare, small and there is nothing extra. For what we paid, we were satisfied.
